- More Mania -

On my way home from school, I stopped by the grocery store to pick up a couple of things. Much to my surprised I found that there had been a run on it. Almost all the milk and eggs gone. No salad. Low on pretty much everything. Eery.

My theory: everyone sees Rita looming in the Gulf and, helpless to do anything about it, they respond by shopping. Better to do something than nothing—even if it's very unlikely that we'll get anything here but much needed moderate rain out.
